And your warriors will fight and die with honor;
they will be buried with their gallant comrades near a city of Peace.
Mighty trees, whose blaze will mark the hallowed ground,
will grow to shade the resting place,
and once each year, they will shower the fallen Heroes
with leaves of gold, to match their valiant deeds . . .
Those beautiful words above were penned by my good friend, Rachel, a wordsmith extraordinaire at lawntea.blogspot.com. She has such a way with words. And those she wrote for the gingkos makes these trees even more magnificent, casting them in an entirely new light. Thank you, Rachel!
